About: Queen Elizabeth Hospital (Birmingham)

What I liked

My husband was admitted by air ambulance to the Queen Elizabeth in Birmingham to have a stent fitted and from the time he was admitted until he left he had first class treatment. He was kept informed about what was happening during the procedure, the staff were very efficient. In fact the air ambulance crew saved his life as his heart stopped and they had to use a difibrillator to get his heart going again. The staff were amazing and explained everything from diet to future needs and I have no hesitation in recommending this hospital as, in our opinion, it is one of the best in the country. Thank you doesn't even come close and we will be doing all we can to raise funds for the air ambulance in future.
